rice krispie ovens

i played with an oven today.
and no, that's not a typo.
not my oven, but this kinda oven:
they're edible ovens!
hehe
the idea came about when i was reminded of how these fantastical printables from claudine hellmuth were still lurking in my head to use.
i bought them awhile ago because they smacked me right in the face with awesomeness along with so many of her other printables that i bought a bunch of different kinds that i plan on using quite soon.

and because food crafters see everything in the world as edible (or at least that's what happens to me), 
i made 2 ovens. 
one for each of my kiddos, just because.

here's how to make one too.
too many steps for you?
ok, here's basically what you need to do:
just place the krispies on parchment paper so they can easily peel off when you're done.

the oven is about a 2x2 inch square and the other one is slightly larger but you can make them any size you want really.
i just like mini things.
i decorated the doors to match the cakes inside.
if you want to attach the door to the oven, do this:
or you can just leave them separated too.
whatever you want. it's your oven.
peek-a-boo! i see you! as i say to the tiny cake when i open the oven door.

i know i'm weird but i got all giddy when these were done.
you can make a tiny bun too instead of a cake out of starburst or taffy and make them for a baby shower for a "bun in the oven" treat.
if i did that i would most likely draw a tiny face on the bun.
:) heehee

or you can just do this and surprise that special someone.
and tell them not to worry about burning the cake inside even if they accidentally have it set to broil.

    1. cry?! i hope those are tears of joy Risa :) it only took me 1/2 hr. to make these-and that involves all the picture taking i did. it's just dipping a rice krispie treat and drawing on it so pretend you are just drawing a picture on a "special piece of paper" and you're good to go-hehe :) thank you SO much for stopping by!

  5. Genius idea and really not too challenging to make either. I love that you matched the cake in the window with the cake in the oven. Every detail is perfect:) Pinning.

    1. jeepers thank you Michelle! i think it would be cool if someone made a cake oven with a mini cake inside. perhaps that may happen but not on this blog as the oven would look like someone took a hammer to it when it got done since i am a lousy cake decorator!-LOL ;)

  7. Hi Lisa - I love the bun in the oven twist to it! So are they electric or gas? Happy day and can't wait to see what you are up to next! Hugs, Holly

    1. it was Claudine's printables that set my brain on fire Kim! i dunno but since i started blogging i see everything as something crafty-inedible things become edible and edible things become inedible-lol guess you could say i think backwards? lol :>O

  10. LOL How cute can you get?! First I was thinking how adorable to make for a little girl who loves playing house with her dollies. Then you popped that little treat inside and I thought "oh my gosh - HOUSE WARMING treats!" and then you mentioned the "little bun" and I could just imagine a room full of baby shower ladies just flipping out over the cutest little favor EVER! You are amazing, dear Lisa!

    2. I came back to check you weren't offended! Phew! I suddenly thought that maybe I was being too English and it might not translate across the world. I did mean it as a complete compliment so I'm so happy it was received in the way it was meant.
